On a point of order, Mr. Speaker, arising out of questions. Very understandably and properly, during Prime Minister's Question Time, you called the chairman of the 1922 Committee, the hon. Member for Working (Mr. Onslow). In view of the well-known fact, which is often referred to, that the hon. Gentleman was in a former incarnation a member of the security services, may I ask whether the BBC if it chooses to—as it normally would with the chairman of the 1922 Committee — can broadcast the hon. Gentleman's contribution during Prime Minister's Question Time?

This is a re-run of what went on yesterday. I am not responsible for what the BBC' puts out on the radio. I did not call the hon. Member for Working (Mr. Onslow) because he was chairman of the 1922 Committee, but because he had not previously in this Parliament put a question to the Prime Minister.
